About the team

You will join albelli’s most ambitious team: the app team, developing apps for both iOS and Android. You will be creating apps that allow our customers to create their own, personalized designs for any of albelli's products, manage and buy their creations. In a world where mobile devices are more and more central to people’s lives, we in the app team have a bold vision: to create amazing quality software that will delight and empower all our customers to make beautiful products with their precious photos.

At albelli, we have a growth mindset. We work Agile and focus on supporting learning and development, both from a team and an individual perspective.

What you will be doing

As a senior JavaScript developer you will be responsible for designing, building and maintaining robust applications for customers who use Android and iOS devices. You will be working in a team of engineers who value teamwork, software quality and testability, learning and growing, being able to focus on what matters and delivering results. You will bring your expertise to make our software and processes better and you will take advantage of ours to work on your own growth.
Our iOS and Android apps are hybrid: some of the UI is written in HTML and JS wrapped into a rich native shell, providing UX as close to native as possible. While you will be focusing on frontend development, you will be also expected to understand and work on the native part of the app when needed. The frontend part of the app is being actively rewritten in React and TypeScript to match best-in-class standards and support our company’s growth ambitions. You will be a part of a friendly and fun team, where everybody is eager to help each other and pair up on hard problems. Our core values are simplicity, correctness, and performance.
